Judge William H. Pauley III, a federal judge from New York who just ruled that collecting NSA data was legal "because of 9/11," in the past let admitted Israeli spy and dual citizen Ben-Ami Kadish go scot-free.

Wikipedia notes:

Ben-Ami Kadish (September 2, 1923 - July 16, 2012) was a former U.S. Army mechanical engineer. He pled guilty in December 2008 to being an "unregistered agent for Israel," and admitted to disclosing classified U.S. documents to Israel in the 1980s. His unauthorized disclosure of classified U.S. secrets to Israel was concurrent with the espionage activity of Jonathan Pollard...

In December 2008, Kadish pleaded guilty to acting as an unregistered agent of Israel, admitting he gave classified documents to Israel in the 1980s. Prosecutors asserted that Kadish had furnished classified American secrets to Yosef Yagur, the same Israeli agent who had received secret documents from Jonathan Pollard. In determining the sentence, Judge William H. Pauley III asserted, "Why it took the government 23 years to charge Mr. Kadish is shrouded in mystery." Pauley stated that prison would "serve no purpose" for a man of Kadish's advanced age and infirmity, opting to levy a $50,000 fine against Kadish. The prosecutor stated that the decision to accept the plea agreement was based on Kadish's cooperation and his willingness to admit wrongdoing. Prior to sentencing, Kadish faced the judge standing with the aid of a cane and stated, "I'm sorry I made a mistake ... It was a misjudgment. I thought I was helping the state of Israel without harming the United States."

A Press Release from the U.S. Attorney Southern District of New York dated May 29, 2009 stated, in part,
BEN-AMI KADISH was sentenced today to pay a fine of $50,000 in connection with his participation in a conspiracy to act as an unregistered agent of the Government of Israel. The sentence was imposed by United States District Judge WILLIAM H. PAULEY III in Manhattan federal court.
KADISH, is a former employee of the U.S. Army's Armament Research, Development, and Engineering Center at the Picatinny Arsenal in Dover, New Jersey. On numerous occasions from about 1980 through 1985, KADISH provided classified documents relating to the U.S. military -- including some relating to U.S. missile defense systems -- to an agent of the Government of Israel who photographed the documents at KADISH�s residence. On December 30, 2008, KADISH, 85, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiring to act as an unregistered agent of the Government of Israel.
News reports at the time noted that Kadish, a Connecticut-born U.S. citizen, was facing a maximum of five years in prison and that "The Israeli embassy had no immediate comment." [Also See: The Israeli Spy Ring.]

He was confirmed by the United States Senate on October 21, 1998, and received his commission on October 22, 1998. Among his notable decisions was that involving Ben-ami Kadish, a U.S. national who pleaded guilty to passing classified information to Israel...

Federal Judge rules NSA data legal because 9/11'

"Just one week after a federal judge ruled against the NSA, another federal judge ruled today in favor of the government and dismissed a case brought by the ACLU against NSA director, James Clapper. Judge William H. Pauley III's reasoning is juvenile but no less chilling. He writes:
"No doubt, the bulky telephony metadata collection program vacuums up information about virtually every telephone call to, from, or within the United States. (But) As the September 11th attacks demonstrate, the cost of missing such a thread can be horrific. Technology allowed Al Qaeda to operate decentralized and plot international terrorist attacks remotely. The bulky telephone metadata collection program represents the Government's counter-punch: connecting fragmented and fleeting communications to re-construct and eliminate al-Qaeda's terror network."

This second (and opposite) ruling increases the likelihood that the challenges will end up before the Supreme Court.
Fun fact: Richard Leon, the D.C. judge who declared the program unconstitutional, was appointed by George W. Bush (and nominated the day before 9/11). William Pauley, the New York judge who upheld the program, was appointed by Clinton.
Judge William Pauley opens his ruling with the mantra of all big police state promoters. "9/11 changes and justifies everything." [Read the full ruling]

In his 54-page December 27, 2013 ruling, which can be downloaded here, Judge Pauley began "The September 11th terrorist attacks revealed, in the starkest terms, just how dangerous and interconnected the world is. While Americans depended on technology for the conveniences of modernity, al-Qaeda plotted in a seventh-century miliew to use that technology against us. It was a bold jujitsu. And it succeeded because conventional intelligence gathering could not detect diffuse filaments connecting al-Qaeda."

Pauley then used the case of 9/11 hijacker Khalid al-Mihdhar to justify the NSA spying program.

Michael German, a senior policy counsel at the ACLU's Washington Legislative Office and a former FBI agent, published an article on October 16, 2013 titled No NSA Poster Child: The Real Story of 9/11 Hijacker Khalid al-Mihdhar, which debunked all these arguments.

"[Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Diane] Feinstein's first claim, based on recent testimony from FBI Director Robert Mueller and the NSA's director, Gen. Keith Alexander, is that the domestic telephone data collection program would have enabled the intelligence community to prevent the 9/11 attacks by revealing that al-Qaeda operative and future 9/11 hijacker Khalid al Mihdhar was inside the United States... There are a few problems with using Mihdhar as the poster child for new domestic spying programs, however. The intelligence agencies, which normally benefit from being able to keep secret any facts that might undermine their arguments, seem to have forgotten that the 9/11 Commission, the Justice Department Inspector General and the intelligence committees in Congress published in detail what the government knew about Mihdhar before the attacks.....In other words, the problem was not that the government lacked the right tools to do its job (it had ample authority to trace Mihdhar's calls). The problem was that the government apparently failed to use them. It's pretty cynical for the intelligence community to use its repeated failures to properly assess information it collected prior to 9/11 as justification for wholesale spying on Americans."

In his ruling for the government, Pauley continued: "Here, the balance of the equities and the public interest tilt firmly in favor of the government's position. "Everyone agrees that the government's interest in combating terrorism is an urgent objective of the highest order." (pg. 47)
"and courts must pay proper deference to the Executive in assessing the threats that face the nation. Most federal judges do not begin the day with briefings that may describe new and serious threats to our Nation and its people. Any injunction dismantling the section 215 telephony metadata collection program "would cause an increased risk to national security and the safety of the American public." (pg. 48)

In his Conclusion, Judge Pauley wrote: "The right to be free from searches and seizures is fundamental, but not absolute. As Justice Jackson famously observed: "The bill of Rights is not a suicide-pact." (pg.51) ...Every day, people voluntarily surrender personal and seemingly-private information to trans-national corporations, which exploit that data for profit. Few think twice about it, even though it is far more intrusive than bulk telephony metadata collection. There is no evidence that the Government has used any of the bulk telephony metadata it collected for any purpose other than investigating and disrupting terrorist attacks. (pg. 52) Liberty and security can be reconciled; and in our system they are reconciled within the framework of the law. The success of one helps protect the other. Like the 9/11 Commission observed: The choice between liberty and security is a false one, as nothing is more apt to imperil civil liberties than the success of a terrorist attack on American soil."
